In 2019, Age UK Norwich partnered with Aesop, a social enterprise and charity, to support three Dance to Health Groups in Norwich. Dance to Health is a pioneering dance and exercise programme for older people. Weekly sessions combine evidence-based falls prevention principles with the creativity, energy and sociability of dance. These three groups are attended by over 40 people weekly.
As part of our involvement with the groups, we are supporting them to become sustainable and run in the future without relying on the involvement of Age UK Norwich staff and funding. To achieve this, we are setting up a committee which comprises of at least a Treasurer, Secretary and Chair to take over the running of the groups as they move towards independence.
We now seek a Secretary to complete the committee to help the committee to ensure that they have everything they need to run the classes. This includes ensuring venues and tutors are booked, organising committee meetings and notetaking.
This is an opportunity to be part of something special that helps older people maintain and improve their health. The sessions are fun, enjoyable and members of the groups are very friendly and welcoming. If you think this is something you would be able to help with, more information can be found in the role here.
